Hey all, I am a triathlete and wondering about wether bp coffee (e.g. coffee with butter + coconut oil) is sufficient as a pre-workout "snack" to prevent katabolism when doing Intermittent Fasting? I am not aiming for the long distance but my... (more)

Yes, in a case like this, this is probably the best commercially made energy bar I've seen. Granted, most of them are garbage. ;-) I would actually consider banana puree superior to a banana mid-race, as hypothetically more (most?) of the... (more)

All you need is three workouts per week -- a tempo run, a track workout (or sprint), and a long run (for 6k a long run would be 8k - 15k depending on how much you enjoy running). Beyond that cross training/ easy runs/ rest will be sufficient. ... (more)

Better make those uphill sprints... nothing drastic--a gentle slope will do. 100-120 yds. at least 8-10 times (2-3x/week) will do wonders.
